The DensElement™ Barrier System with FastFlash

The DensElement™ Barrier System with FastFlash

PROSOCO has teamed up with Georgia‐Pacific Gypsum, one of the leading manufacturers of gypsum sheathing, to bring a time- and money‐saving, revolutionary new product to the construction industry. The DensElement™ Barrier System unites science with technology.

FastFlash is the only GP-approved flashing membrane for the DensElement™ Barrier System. Comprised only with approved components, the system has undergone rigorous performance testing for conformance with the current water-resistive barrier and air barrier requirements of the International Building Code (IBC) and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Those components include DensElement™ Sheathing from Georgia-Pacific Gypsum and R-Guard® FastFlash® Liquid Flashing Membrane.

 

 

 

How it works

DensElement™ Barrier System with AquaKOR™ technology from Georgia-Pacific is a new sheathing barrier system that integrates a water- and air-resistive barrier within the gypsum core. The system is comprised of three GP‐approved system components: DensElement™ Sheathing, PROSOCO R‐Guard® FastFlash® liquid flashing to fill and seal joints, fasteners, and other penetrations, and PROSOCO PorousPrep™ water‐based primer to prime exposed gypsum edges. As a system solution, the DensElement Barrier System eliminates the need to apply other water or air barriers that cover or coat the entire wall.

When finished with PROSOCO R-Guard® products, the DensElement™ Barrier System features a high vapor permeability that helps walls dry out if moisture is introduced, rather than trapping water inside where it can lead to moisture-related failures in walls.
